This action is being called for in order to provide a framework for different groups and individuals to organize autonomously and bring their own contributions to make the action as diverse and expressive as possible.

Visual art through signs, banners, puppets, dress, etc. is being stressed
to make sure our presence is noted and felt.*

There will be room for various forms of expression of dissent and creativity and distinctive spaces for people to manifest them.

As the WTO has its meetings in Qatar far from the reach of the voices of the people We will localize our global resistance As we march, sing, and speak hard truth to the powers that be in Chicago, Thousands and thousands of people from around the world will be out in the streets, reclaiming their cities and towns; remembering the battle of Seattle.
